Data has evolved into a critical business function for enterprise organizations. At the least, data is the nervous system of your operations, and for many data is a critical part of their products or services. While many mistakenly think of data as a technology challenge, the reality is that reliable data is the end result of people, process, and technology all working together. The majority (85%) of large data initiatives are doomed to fail without a holistic plan and strategic approach to their data.
That's why Onebridge helps clients build data strategies that address all aspects required to deliver real value and business outcomes. We use our expertise and proven processes to ensure your success.
MAP (Modern Analytics Platform) is a data strategy framework Onebridge developed to help enterprise organizations fully realize the promise and power of data-driven decision intelligence. Over time, we've learned that successful data initiatives require a holistic approach that encompasses people, processes, technology, and data. So we built and tested MAP as a customizable, proven road map. We use it to help you assess, plan, guide, and execute enterprise-level data strategy. We shorten the process using accelerators and custom solutions that we built to solve recurring challenges.
This is a great video to get a quick and simple introduction to MAP and COMPASS. Andrew covers the main components of MAP and what our COMPASS process looks like and involves. MAP encompasses the entire journey your organization must travel to get to your destination. What's that destination? Reliable, effective decision intelligence that improves business outcomes.
Andrew talks about how we break down your journey into strategy, execution, and enablement, and you can see the components within each category. By customizing a roadmap specifically for you, we give you and all your stakeholders a clear understanding of where you stand and what you need to do next. When everyone is aligned, the process is more effective, efficient, and successful!
MAP begins with a strategic foundation to ensure we’ve asked and answered all the important questions about how you trust your data, supply your data, and analyze your data. Our process reveals and defines the path forward, and includes data governance, platform selection, and business-value alignment.
Once the strategy is clear, we look at the tactical requirements needed to meet your objectives. After a plan is in place, our team can deliver a complete, end-to-end data and analytics solution, or fill in the gaps based on your current needs. We use process and technology accelerators to deliver results more efficiently.
At the heart of enablement is Organizational Change Management (OCM). OCM includes guiding the adoption, accessibility, and education of your data strategy throughout your team. Our team can help accelerate this process by providing support, training, education, and user adoption.
Successfully executing a data strategy is a daunting task for all sizes of organizations, but especially at the enterprise level. With all the parts and pieces that need to fit into place across your people, processes, and technology, it’s no wonder so many data initiatives fail.
Our COMPASS (Comprehensive MAP Assessment) evaluation uses MAP to provide a clear path to get you started on your unique journey. With these tools, we can meet your organizational needs at any level, taking you from where you stand now to becoming a data-driven force that leverages decision intelligence.
COMPASS’ comprehensive evaluation process includes gathering input from all stakeholders in your organization, performing a full inventory of your current data and technology stack, and building a custom MAP that visually lays out where you are and the steps to take you where you need to go. The image above shows there are many leading partners we work with, but we only choose the ones that best fit your unique needs.
The process takes between 6 weeks to 3 months, depending on your size, technology infrastructure, and business objectives. Undergoing data modernization, or what some call “digital transformation,” is a massive undertaking for all organizations. We’ve learned that taking time up front to plan your data strategy, execution, and enablement will get you to your desired business outcomes so much faster. Planning ensures the end results deliver the insights and intelligence that will bring value to your organization and drive effective decision-making.
